Side Path

    Side Path
    Directed, choreographed and designed by Kieron Jina
    Original sound composition by Yogin Sullaphen
    Lighting designer: Kamini Soobben
    Stage manager: Emma Tollman

    Synopsis
    This particular path has veered from reality - a force to be reckoned with.
    A Side Path is in every human journey.
    A Side Path is the space that exists in-between.
    On a Side Path, you choose to go in the opposite direction.
    This work is a violent interplay between the outer body and the emotions of the inner experience.
    Side Path raises awareness of those who are sidelined. Relationships affected by trauma are unresolved - two worlds come together, love strikes and passion resonates. Dreams are created through visual languages.
    Side Path is a multi-layered work - a synthesis of dance theatre, video art and soundscapes.
    Director’s note:
    My aim is to make work that stimulates active debate amongst the community. It is my goal that the contribution of my work will be a new visual, experiential language that finds its expression through performance, technology and geography.
